Hudson Leick in Tru Calling Pilot

Here's a story from on Hudson's guest role in Tru Calling:

Leick Gets Her Calling

Genre actress Hudson Leick, who played Callisto in Xena: Warrior Princess, returns to the small screen in a guest role in the pilot of Fox's upcoming supernatural drama Tru Calling, TV Guide Online reported. The role marks Leick's comeback after Xena wrapped.

"I quit acting for about two years," Leick told the site. "I just wasn't crazy about the business. When you work, you're so lucky. I mean, only [a small percentage] of the Screen Actors Guild actually makes enough money to support themselves. I just didn't think that was what I wanted to do. But I was wrong."

In Tru Calling, Leick appears with star Eliza Dushku, formerly of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, which Leick is already eyeing for further work. "The same casting agency that hired me for Tru Calling [handles] Angel, and I really want to play a vampire," she said. "So anything is possible." Tru Calling premieres Oct. 30 and will air Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Angel returns Oct. 1 in its regular Wednesday 9 p.m. timeslot.

Hudson a vampire on Angel?! wow, that I have to see (if it actually happens)..I think I still have that impression of her from Xena...if she put some of evil Callisto into the role, that would be one psychotic fun!!

It's great to see Hudson back on the screen. Hopefully this will lead to bigger LEAD roles (no more simple "guest appearances").
